    Hi - I'm not sure where to post this query to, so please forgive me.

    I'm looking for two of my great uncles - John William aka 'Johnny' & Francis Densham both of whom served in the 2nd Battalion Lincolnshire Regiment.

    John William was already a soldier when the 2nd WW broke out and was in India in 1925.

    I believe at some point he was at Dinapore Cautomnents (not sure this is right)

    Many thanks for any help and advice

    Hello and welcome to the forum. I've listed the units war diary ref's below that are held at the National Archives in London. I already have a copy of the WO 167 one and if you can not get to TNA send me a private message as I offer forum members a copying service, just click the red link below.

    Good luck
